Who We Are

Our Mission

The Clubhouse is a trio of interdisciplinary pediatric therapy clinics that specialize in the evaluation and treatment of children who require therapeutic support to meet their developmental milestones and achieve their full potential.

Through our integrative, play-based approach we help children find their voice, acquire crucial life skills, and gain independence while working with families and caregivers along the way.

At the Clubhouse, we simplify life for our families by offering multiple therapy specialties all under one roof. It is our mission to celebrate our clients’ strengths while fortifying them in their areas of need. We do this through communication and partnership with our families.

Care Driven By Compassion

The Clubhouse is the realization of our team’s professional dream — a center where families can help their children grow with pride and confidence. Founded over 20 years ago, the Clubhouse embodies the philosophy that communication is the cornerstone of human interaction. We know it takes a joint effort, combining the talents of highly trained professionals and family members, to guide children in reaching their potential.
